Ranking for penguins?


Students can be happy to be so easily and clearly put in the nose, where you should study the best. And yet such a ranking, especially garnished with the promise "job guarantee" is also dangerous - and indeed for Company, It suggests: Simply study according to Scheme F at the University of XY - and then you will find a job.

I have only recently been in a Lecture by Marcus K. Reif, Personnel at Ernst and Young learn that companies should urgently worry about diversity: Important for companies are not penguins, the recrutieren again and again new penguins, but cross heads.

But they often came to their destination by detours and had to deal with their own failure again and again. As an example, you only have to look at the career of the manager Thomas Sattelberger, who made it from the communist to the board of Telekom, where he introduced the women's quota and repeatedly argues against MBA and elite training.

Only studied subjects close to the economy


You can also argue about the mehtodic of the ranking. Studis Online has done that and scolds:

... the approach seems rather limited. Only economically oriented subjects were taken into the race. The eight chosen subjects at the universities are: Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Business Administration (BWL), Business Informatics, Electrical Engineering, Economics (Economics), Natural Sciences and Industrial Engineering.

Of course, only subjects that seem to be of interest to companies are of course consistent - because, unfortunately, in Germany, too much attention is still being paid to the field of study in comparison to other countries.

How subjective is the rating?


But I am a little different: For the university ranking Universum and access KellyOCG since 2007 annually surveyed only 500 personnel responsible for Germany. This selection I find a little unrepresentative. And also subjective.

The results reflect the staff 's perception that the universities and universities of applied sciences are best suited to the needs of companies, which criteria are important for the selection of applicants, and in which soft skills the staff of the higher education institutions have more commitment to the education of the students.

The self-fulfilling prophecy


As I know from conversations with many people responsible for personnel, such personal assessments often involve very personal experiences: not only good or bad experiences with the graduates of this or that university, but perhaps the person responsible for the personnel himself has studied at the university.

He maintains good relations with the respective professors. Or even worse, he knows such rankings and has, often unconsciously, joined the general opinion about the university XY. Such things play much more often a valuation than many a good one, and thereby become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Top colleges with job guarantee?


But what are the top universities with an alleged job guarantee? Previously, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), which has won the top spot in three disciplines. The technical university, which is focussed on engineering and natural sciences, is ranked first in the fields of economic engineering, mechanical engineering and computer science in the assessment of more than 500 employees in Germany.

RWTH Aachen occupies the top position in the fields of electrical engineering and the natural sciences. At the Fachhochschulen, the staff responsible for personnel chose the Reutlingen University of Applied Sciences in the fields of business administration (business administration) and business engineering. The Berlin-based universities and technical colleges made a great leap forward.

The TU Berlin has improved in all areas and is among the top ten in five specialist areas in this year's ranking. The Humboldt University of Berlin and the Freie Universität Berlin were also able to jump into the top ten in three or two disciplines. At the Fachhochschulen, the HTW Berlin in the mechanical engineering sector climbed for the first time, an improvement by eight positions compared to the previous year.
